If for nothing else, deserves to be fondly remembered for bringing the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man into the world.

An exciting and fun genre hybrid rarely mastered.

Director Ivan Reitman keeps the Aykroyd-Ramis screenplay zipping right along, creating something like Abbott & Costello Meet the Exorcist. Aykroyd and Murray make the perfect summer tonic for raising spirits.

In both the funny and the (mildly) scary moments, the cast does itself proud.

"Ghostbusters" is a fun romp with a couple of comedy's greatest stars at the top of their game.

This is London

It provoked huge box-office success in 1984 and is still director Ivan Reitman's defining movie.

Total Film

The leads' chemistry is almost, well, spooky, Dan Aykroyd's nerdy enthusiasm rubbing deliciously against a persona-perfecting turn from Bill Murray - and there's even the odd surprise.

The often dazzling, special effects-driven slapstick tends to overshadow the fact that there are some slyer, more sophisticated laughs on offer in this blockbusting family comedy.

Antagony & Ecstasy

A comedy first, a horror film second... but a successful enough hybrid of those things that it would be wrong to try to limit it generically.

Slant Magazine

The movie's tongue-in-cheek (and pre-subprime) satire of surging capitalist hubris is scarcely mitigated by the necessary fairy-tale ending.

Whoever thought of having evil's final manifestation take the form of a 100-ft. marshmallow deserves the rational mind's eternal gratitude.

October 5, 2008

Stuffed with wisecracking, punning and essential deadpanning care of the film's most notable star performer Murray (who has such delivery down as a fine art), the film also packs in a half-decent narrative.

With his deadpan delivery and snide quips, Murray more than holds his own amid the myriad state-of-the-art special effects.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

Essentially a $30 million version of Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy but not at all a bad time, thanks mainly to Bill Murray's incredibly dry line readings and director Ivan Reitman's maintenance of a moderately coherent tone and plotline.
